Destec Engineering Ltd, designers and manufacturers of high pressure pipe connectors for the oil and gas industry were looking for a hard wearing floor finish for their manufacturing facility in Lincoln. Having considered the possibility of a resin floor they contacted The National Flooring Company Ltd to discuss the options available to them.
The company have a fully equipped machine workshop where their products are made. Due to the manufacturing processes involved, Destec Engineering Ltd was looking for a hardwearing floor finish that could withstand their daily activities and that was easy to maintain.
Following a comprehensive consultation and site survey, National Flooring specified the Degafloor QT system. The system incorporates a mix of resin and aggregate, which is trowel applied at a nominal thickness of 4mm to provide an extremely durable. The texture of the system can be varied to suit requirements and as the manufacturing at the facility is a dry process, additional seal coats were applied to provide a smoother finish. The Degafloor QT system is well suited for dry manufacturing areas and is capable of withstanding the most demanding engineering environments.
As with all Degafloor products the QT system cures fully within just two hours of installation, meaning that National Flooring could work with Destec Engineering Ltd to install the floor at a time most suited to their requirements. The area which totalled 350m2 was completed in one weekend and was fully cured before the Monday, meaning the company could continue production as usual with no disruption.

We required a hard wearing, slip resistant floor that would last us years. We contacted National Flooring who gave a great service from start to finish. Plus they laid the floor over a weekend with no disruption. “
